We always want something different it seems. A new car, a new job, to win the lottery, to have children that excel in school – the list is unlimited. However not many of us are not willing to work at something long and hard. We want it to be easy. Accomplishing our life’s goals or dreams, or wanting to be happier requires effort. ‘Nothing good comes easy’, so I hear.
For me, I’ve always had a coach of one type or another by my side. It’s not that I’m unmotivated to achieve my goals, but the support has been invaluable. A business coach, a spiritual coach, a life purpose coach and more lately, a transformational coach are some of the ones that I have chosen on my journey. The times in my life where I was ‘winging it alone’ were the times that I felt I was going in circles – circles in my head and circles in my life’s direction. You know, just like the hamster on his little wheel; pedalling fast but going nowhere.
A few times I have used a therapist or a counsellor when coaching wasn’t even heard of as a profession. This approach didn’t allow me to necessarily think for myself, or choose the direction of my journey. There were too many judgments, suggestions and opinions that didn’t allow me to ‘feel’ what was right for me. You know, that gut feeling we all have but ignore.
We all know what is good for us. Sometimes you can go through periods in life, short or long, where you question everything and nothing seems to be going where you want it to go. I’ve found these times were from a lack of clarity, within myself. The answers I know were inside of me, but I couldn’t hear them for the lack of peace, harmony and faith.
Sometimes the answers become clear in one session! Sometimes it takes longer but there is always the greatest sense of inspiration when you work with someone that has no agenda but to see YOU succeed! You know you are capable. You know you can do anything. Nothing is hard but that which is in our minds. If you want life altering changes, book a session with me – I’ll help you along your journey with passion, and you will never again feel resigned that this is all you can do or be! You are ready for this!

How many times in your lifetime have you uttered those few words?
I think too many times, if you are asking me.
I’ve done it millions of times I’m sure of it. How do I know? It’s my ‘go to’ answer for everything. Why? Because it’s no one’s business but my own, how I’m really doing. I don’t want to talk about it one more time to one more person, or in my case, to the same people that love me and support me each and every day.
I would rather tell a stranger that I’m having a crappy day, than someone I care about. After all, I support them. I shouldn’t expect anything in return. Right?
I have to say though, that this gets tiring. There are days when I just want to say the absolute truth.
The truth is some days just SUCK! Sometimes it’s weeks on end, or months and in some cases it feels and probably is, years. Yep, I’m tired! However, there is one thing that makes all of this just okay and sometimes enlightening. You could say ‘okay’ isn’t enough and I agree, however enlightening is enough.
I absolutely refuse to give up on my dreams. I refuse to live a life of mediocrity. I refuse to be average. I refuse to be like everyone else, in a dead end job, in a dead end relationship, and accepting my status quo rather than fighting for what I believe I deserve.
Some days I doubt what I truly deserve and I make a mess of everything. I doubt, I second-guess myself, and I don’t follow through on anything that is of worth to me in my life and on those days I give up. Tomorrow is always another day to do better and on those days when I’m really tired – tomorrow is a lifesaver.
Tomorrow, I go about making my dreams come true because I’m still not prepared to give up.
I have a friend Joyce that bought me a picture years ago with a saying on it – I hang it in my living room where I see it everyday. It reads:
‘No matter how impossible it may seem, never underestimate the power of a dream.’ (D.Morgan)
What are you doing about your dreams? Are you choosing to settle? Have you given up?
Mel Robbins, in the video attached, talks about the odds of anyone of us being born and alive.
She says the chances are 1 in 400, 000, 000, 000, 000 and most of us spend our lives wasting it rather than seeking out why we are here on this earth at this time. We squander this miracle by not realizing our potential. Are you one of those people? If you are, get your SHIT together, and make a move. Your time on earth is short. Don’t waste it in some useless job or unfulfilling relationship.
Make your heart soar by going after your dreams. Don’t give up.
